A Shattered Crown
|A Shattered Crown|
|Quest Start||Deckard Cain|
|Quest End||Haedrig Eamon|
A Shattered Crown is the third quest in Diablo III and introduces that player to the Blacksmith and grants the ability to open a Town Portal back to town. The quest involves the search and restoration of King Leoric's crown, which is needed to unlock the lower levels of the Cathedral and to eventually awaken the Skeleton King. The Crown can be found in one of the three crypts in the Cemetery of the Forsaken - the correct one will have a Defiled Crypt Level 2 doorway inside. The wrong ones will have a portal back to the Cemetery. Upon completion of this quest, Blacksmith's Belongings will spawn near the Blacksmith which contains Mira's Letter to Haedrig.

The Skeleton King was once our beloved lord, Leoric. He was driven mad by Diablo's evil.
He lost both of his sons--and his very soul--before he was finally defeated. Now it seems he's risen to plague this land once again.
A sad tale, but I seek the fallen star and he stands in my way.
Then I will be the cure.
A tragic story, but I cannot reach the fallen star until I face him.
Nonetheless, the Skeleton King bars my path to the fallen star.
Leoric should be in the Unformed Land, yet he stands between me and the fallen star.
Leoric's tale is sad, but I am here to find the fallen star and the Skeleton King stands in my way.
The key to defeating him lies in his old crown. Seek out our blacksmith, Haedrig; he knows of its whereabouts.

|Quest Log Update|
My grim work is done. The blacksmith's wife and friends are dead. I must now ask him to help me find the crown of the Skeleton King.
I couldn't have done this without you. I'm in your debt. My name is Haedrig Eamon.
Haedrig, I need your aid. I must find Leoric's crown.
You owe me nothing, friend. But I would welcome your aid in my quest to find the crown of Leoric.
There is one favor I must ask of you. Do you know where Leoric's crown is?
As it happens, I am looking for King Leoric's crown. Perhaps you know of it?
I need your assistance, Haedrig. I search for the crown of Leoric.
Well, Haedrig, Deckard Cain told me you know where Leoric's crown is.
I can help you there. It's buried with his chancellor--my grandfather.

Talk to Haedrig Eamon
You found the crown? Truth be told, I didn't think you'd make it back alive.
Ahh, it needs repair. Should be no problem...
I need something more than making spades to occupy my mind. I want my life to mean something.
Then follow me and hone your skills. There is deadly work to be done and I will need your arms.
Then join my crusade. The work is hard, the rewards are few, and you'll likely die.
Then we are allies. Each weapon you forge for me shall serve to purify these lands.
As you should. You will craft for me weapons with which to carry out my sacred duty.
We all seek meaning in grief. Maybe we will find it together.
Then help me. I will use your handiwork for great things.
(Crusader) That does sound meaningful—and awful.
Continues if found Haedrig's apprentice
Well, at least you'll travel to interesting places. I have grim news. Your apprentice has fallen.
(crusader) Ach. Fool boy never listened to me. But he was a good lad for all that. I thank you, crusader
